Paper Abstract

The limited use of stereoscopic 3-D displays may be due in part to the general belief that there are few, if any, tasks that require binocular vision. The importance of binocular depth cues varies with the type of task, as well as with a number of other factors. Ex-amples are given of several tasks that are nearly impossible without 3-D vision, suggesting that the potential benefits of 3-D display techniques may have been overlooked in a number of important application areas.
